    Just a little update on my comments. Yesterday was a big up day for the stock market. It looks like today "might" be the same (but who knows).

    I would add that the old saying that "Fear & Greed" rule the stock market is in general true. People were scared & it dropped. Now that it's so low I think more people are coming back into it.

    My short term outlook is that I'm clueless. Long term outlook is that Trump has lower taxes on people (they will have more to spend) & businesses (they have more profit to reinvest) & long term that makes a good market. By cutting needless regulations that also saves businesses money & that could be the key to long term economic success (in my view). I think people way over reacted but that's normal. Whatever the news the market has wild swings that are both way to high & way to low.

    We will probably wind up OK, but the money we could of ordinarily made during the 6 months that takes will go righteously into the pockets of the super rich and connected. Like the congress people who dumped their stock. I'm sure that makes you feel better as you are contributing to the creation of a two class society.
